This monumental work of biblical scholarship is filled with helpful insights into God’s Word that every pastor, Bible teacher, and Christian will benefit from. We’ve needed this commentary for a long, long time!

—Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church and author of The Purpose Driven Life

A publishing landmark. . . . Its foundation is biblical, its perspective African, and its approach to controversial questions balanced. I intend to use it myself in order to gain African insights into the Word of God. Indeed, I hope it will have a wonderful readership.

—John R. Stott

A rich and valuable contribution to biblical knowledge and understanding. I commend it to Christian leaders, not only in Africa but the world over.

—Justice James Ogenyi Ogebe, High Court, Nigeria

A good and readable blend of excellent scholarship, heartwarming spirituality, and relevant application. It challenges African Christianity, and wider, to a necessary commitment of heart, mind, and will. Its target audience and the wider church will find it to be a useful treasure.

—Dr. Douglas Carew, vice chancellor, Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology

This outstanding volume is a landmark for African Christianity. Wherever the Bible is loved and read, this volume will enhance people’s understanding and application of it.
